There had really been no choice but to kill the other queen as part of a team effort. From there they'd been able to negotiate with the remaining Brood: the X-Men would transport the Brood to their home system, but only because of that whole extinction thing. The X-Men would be allowed to leave, and the Brood in them would be safely removed and allowed to live, but they wouldn't return to the others. The Brood refused to take the Broodling back, which was fine since Storm wouldn't have allowed them to anyway, and he'd stay at the Peak until the other Broodlings hatched so he could try to influence them into being not totally murderous and terrible. Storm also insisted on inviting him to the school if he ended up as much of an outcast among them as he feared.

The sun was rising when they finally got back to the mansion. They said goodbye to Hank and Brand, and Lockheed and Kitty had a long talk about where they were these days. Since she was technically still living between two universes, he'd stay with SWORD, at least for now. But they were working something out so they could see each other more, which was why he was still around today.

Normally Kitty would crawl into bed and go the hell to sleep, but since she didn't do that anymore, instead she laid on the bed next to Clint. Lockheed curled up directly next to her to sleep, as was only right.

[For the non-dragon in the bed.]

It was a little weird not to be in Clint's New York today, since that had sort of become a thing, but Kitty didn't really want to spend all day explaining the suit, and um. Thanksgiving was kind of awkward when you couldn't eat.

So it was a low-key day. Just Clint and Kitty and the dogs, and pizza. Because what, were they going to do a whole big thing for one person? No. Pizza.

"Next year I'm going to be normal and we're totally doing this right," Kitty stated as she set the food out.

[For the guy who gets to eat food!]
throughaphase: (suit: angry)
For the most part Kitty actually had a positive attitude about this whole not having a solid body thing. Sure, it sucked, really hard, for a lot of reasons, but she was alive and there was still a chance this wasn't her permanent state, and there was plenty to be positive about there!

And then after spending a morning trying to kick around baggage that kept falling around her- see, she could make it productive- she'd given up, put the suit back on, and sat on the couch for some mindlessness.

The meta for Ghost was on. And if that wasn't annoying enough, a giant trunk labeled "STUCK INTANGIBLE" fell right in front of the TV, blocking her view and sending poor Rook running into her lap.

"Now look what you did," Kitty glared at the trunk.

throughaphase: (suit: neutral)
After two days in a tube, unable to communicate except when Clint was there, not needing to eat or sleep or basically do anything but look out the little window and wave at people, Kitty got to get out. They'd come up with a suit that looked kind of like a uniform, only with a helmet, and being totally enveloped in this suit meant that her molecules would actually stay together, and she could be mobile again. And talk.

In fact, poor Emma had been in the infirmary when Kitty began to talk again, and after begging her to shut up already, once Kitty started wondering aloud how she could see when her body was phased because science didn't work that way, Emma called Clint down so he could deal with it.

So this still wasn't ideal, and the prognosis wasn't terrific, but it was better.

[For the fiance! And for the time being, Kitty's going to be stuck in the suit, which she will always be wearing even when the icons don't reflect that.]
throughaphase: (stuck in a tube)
Some things had changed in the weeks Kitty had been presumed probably dead. Instead of Hank being the one to deal with her- he was apparently working with SWORD now?- it was Kavita Rao and Dr. Nemesis. Weird. And it turned out that they'd been sort of prepared to deal with Kitty's situation, as she'd immediately been led into a capsule that would keep her molecules stable enough to keep her from dissipating. Turns out when you'd been in this situation before, they learned how to deal with it. She still couldn't talk or touch anything or become solid at all, but at least she was alive, and on a planet, let alone the right one. She'd take it as a win.

She was trying to watch what she could from the window in the tube, seeing people move around and taking care of Magneto, and while she didn't know what exactly had happened she immediately felt bad about it.

[For the boy!]
throughaphase: (blah)
Once upon a time a girl took a ride on a bullet into outer space. It's okay, though. It was a ghost bullet. And she kept it ghostly always and nobody ever got hurt, so that probably made it okay. All she had to do was keep it together forever and ever until she died. Everything would be okay.

Kitty had brought Clint with her to New York, and by the evening she decided to drag him out for date night. Westchester didn't have quite the selection NYC did, but she at least knew of a good pizza place.

As they waited for their food, she said, "This is how you know I love you. New York pizza and I'm missing the Cubs."

[For the date!]
throughaphase: (hanging out)
While Clint was in his office, Kitty was entertaining Barney at the house. Which she was totally fine with, since they got along and it always gave them an opportunity to talk about Clint stuff. There was no bad there.

"So how are things in New York?" she asked, taking a seat on the couch.

[For anyone named Barton!]
throughaphase: (lounging)
Kitty had actually had a pretty good weekend, catching up with friends who'd left and meeting some new people. And sure, getting mistaken for other versions of herself who'd gone here had been a little weird, especially being mistaken for a dead version of herself, but that was Fandom for you.

But it had left her with a lot to think about, so she was spending part of her day on the sofa with a pint of ice cream and what should have been puppy cuddles, but was mostly her telling Lucky that no, he couldn't have chocolate, sorry.

[For the guy!]
throughaphase: (um!)
Kitty had gotten back from New York today, and hadn't really wanted to do much of anything when she got back. So it wasn't till she'd hung around the house long enough to get just bored enough to clean up that she put the radio broadcasts from the last week on as background noise.

"Uh... honey?"

[I'm back! For the boy!]
throughaphase: (comics.)
In case you haven't seen my four million tweets about it, I'm moving! Over the exact dates of the BDE! Seriously, I have a computer genius character here! You have no idea how sad I am about this! Exclamation point!

Anyway, as of Wednesday I'm going to be internetless and/or traveling cross country to Chicago, and will only have phone internets or whatever passes for hotel wifi until Sunday. Of course then I'm staying with a friend until I get my own place and have no idea what her wifi situation is like, buuuut I'm now very unemployed, so I'm sure I'll be figuring availability things out for a bit. So for the meantime, Kitty's back home dealing with an X-emergency, Claire's a nightingale, and Gwen's back home having the worst time in scheduled posts.

See you all from CST!
throughaphase: (outside)
In the world Wanda had built for everybody, this last weekend would have been Clint and Kitty's wedding. Instead of being weird and awkward about it in Fandom, they'd taken the dogs and headed for Clint's safehouse, and stayed for slightly longer than intended because SDCC. While Kitty wasn't sure she felt better about the whole situation that they had been specifically not talking about, at least there'd been the distractions.

And on the last day, she'd procrastinated on packing enough to walk outside to the beach, where she could sit for a little bit without any squirrels spying on her.

[For the boy!]
throughaphase: (lip bite)
Kitty had fully intended to come in and get some administrative work done before her portal to New York. But Clint had come along, and she was feeling better after the last couple horrible weeks, and one thing led to another...

Unfortunately she'd forgotten that she'd lent Tino the office key, and he picked a terrible time to use it to return the clothes he borrowed yesterday. There was some screaming, and shielding of eyes, and after he'd run out and things were quiet again, Kitty said, "So that was a first."

[Checking off allll the I Nevers. For the boy!]
throughaphase: (ew)
Kitty hadn't paid that much attention. She saw ice cream in the freezer, so naturally she had to get a spoon and have some, even if it wasn't even lunch yet.

A second later though, she found a paper towel to spit it into- something that should never have to be done with ice cream- and picking up the container to see why it tasted so weird. It looked fine, but seriously, were those pork rinds in there?

"No," she told the container seriously. "No."

[Can be open! I had to keep the trend going.]
throughaphase: (i have a sad)
It had been a really, really long day so far. After this morning's chaos, they'd had to get everyone calmed down. And then they had to get the X-Men on the same page about what happened and what a school for mutant kids was supposed to do when most of their students weren't mutants anymore. And then they had to tell the kids what was happening. There had been a lot of time spent fielding calls from parents and calling the ones that for whatever reason hadn't called first and hugging people and trying to find out who was affected besides those who were here and watching the news channels freak out because aside from the few who remembered what happened on Genosha, no one in the world knew what was going on. When she got too stressed out, Kitty took a couple minutes to herself, phased up to Ororo's attic to have a good cry, and then came back down and went right back to it.

Things had settled enough that they'd done everything they could do for now. When most of the students had retreated to their rooms to be alone or pack, Kitty went back to her room to try calling or emailing the people she hadn't been able to get in touch with yet. Okay, maybe she hadn't done everything yet.

[Open for the boy or calls, etc.]
throughaphase: (computer)
With school finally ending- and not that she didn't love teaching disinterested, mostly mutant junior high kids but she needed the break- Kitty's life seemed to be mostly focusing on all the planning she had to do. Her dress wasn't ready and there were still a thousand tiny decisions to be made and while she wasn't a bridezilla she was trying to get things settled before her mom found something to get upset about.

So, she was sitting on the sofa with her laptop, playing with her spreadsheet on what still needed to be done and what vendors needed to be paid. And she was not at all cheating by keeping a browser window open to see all the arrangements they were making for the House of Magnus' gala. She was curious, okay?

[As of the last post Clint, Kitty and the rest of her world are under a glamor that they have some version of their perfect life. They've never been to Fandom and don't know anyone there unless they exist in Kitty's universe. Yes, it's temporary.
Open for calls to Kitty and Clint once he pings in!]
